SPRUCE (Systems and Software Producibility Collaboration and Evaluation Environment) is an open web portal and experimentation environment to bring together Department of Defense (DoD) software developers, users, and software engineering researchers by collaborating on specifying and solving software producibility challenge problems. The SPRUCE approach emphasizes collaboration around well-defined challenge problems with project-specific artifacts representative of DoD projects and experimentation for reproducing the stated problems, establishing benchmarks and evaluating solutions. This poster illustrates SPRUCE's key features, including self-organizing communities of interest (CoI), dynamically evolving challenge problems with accompanying artifacts, and built-in experimentation facilities to reproduce the problems and evaluate solutions. Finally, it showcases some early experiences and results with representative challenge problems.
